This past season, Good averaged 17 points and 14 rebounds per game for a 26-8 Fresno City team.

Rutgers collected 11 hits, led by Frazier (2-for-3, HR, 2B), Majewski (2-for-4, HR) and Steve Normane (2-for-4, 2 doubles).

In the language of NCAA legislation it is called institutional criteria for Div. I-A membership.
In the athletic departments of the NCAA's 240 Div. I football-playing schools it is quickly becoming the sport's most significant upheaval in a quarter century.
The new stricter standards, rubber-stamped by the NCAA Board of Directors last month, make it harder for the lower rung of the 117 I-A programs to retain their status. At the same time, they are meant to strengthen I-AA, the next highest level of college football. The standards didn't come as a shock since the legislation had been in the NCAA pipeline for years.
